Wonderful apartment, 20 minutes walk from the Old City or 10 minutes by tram/bus. To go to the beach you may bike - bike lane is next door or take one of the numerous trams. There are great beaches nearby, some of them are not well known but I will show you where we usually go swimming. Gdańsk is a great place and not to worry - I have a number of guide books and info for you to use. I will provide you with lots of information about the area, city and even places to go to that are closeby.
